Prototyping Web Apps with WordPress by Blaise Freeman and Ned Lomigora (@zeeenmedia)
In this presentation we'll share how our startup—Zeeen—is using WordPress to quickly prototype and test novel web applications for promoting books. We wrote a plugin to simplify and accelerate creation of promotional platform for authors, which may have a wider application. We'll walk you through tradeoffs we made while building this plugin. We will make this plugin available the WordPress community at large and welcome any feedback.
Blaise Freeman and Ned Lomigora are local entrepreneurs and co-founders of zeeen.com, a book promotion startup based in Boston, MA.
